10 Very Useful Moving Tips

Posted on September 28th, 2014

Here’s a few tips you may not have thought of, that will make the moving process easier on you.

1. Pack the items you’ll need right away after the move in a clear plastic bin. Put your paper towels and toilet paper, phone and laptop chargers, and the things you’ll need to cook your first meal or two into a clear bin. That way you’ll be able to see what’s in the bin, and it will also stand out from the rest of your boxes, making it easier to find as you’re taking everything off of the truck. If you don’t have a clear plastic bin, adding colored duct tape or a splash of spray paint to the outside of a cardboard box will also work.

 

2. Use clothes as protection. Wrapping flatware and other breakable items in clothing can save you on the cost of bubble wrap, and can also save a lot of space. Socks make great holders for glasses, and most other breakables can be put inside of shirts or wrapped in towels.

 

3. Prevent spills by putting saran wrap over the top of your toiletry bottles.
